AARP Reacts to Early Enrollment Numbers for Medicare Part D

AARP Senior Managing Director of Government Relations and Advocacy, David Sloane, made the following statement in response to early enrollment numbers released today by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):

AARP believes it is still very early in the enrollment process and these numbers must be used in the proper context. We have been very encouraged by the great interest in learning more about the program and how to enroll. AARP phone lines and education events across the country have been filled with Americans seeking more information about their new cost-saving options.

Though we are in the earliest stages of a long enrollment process, we believe that over the next several months as Americans begin to see savings on their prescription drug bills, they will recognize that the time spent enrolling in a plan was worthwhile.

In the mean time, there is still work to be done. AARP will continue to educate our members on the new benefit and will carry on our fight to lower prescription drug costs, not only for people on Medicare, but for all Americans.
